Orphans on film

We are all for marketing initiatives promoting Herefordshire. We did have to think twice when it came to the notion of appearing on film though - we're quite a bashful bunch really. We finally overcame our trepidation and now we see the quality of the 'Behind the Door in Herefordshire' video (below) we are glad we did. It showcases a number of businesses making the most of digital technology and challenges any lingering perceptions that this lovely county may lag behind in terms of harnessing new technology. Orphans features for a couple of minutes highlighting how we use a digital workflow to see print jobs from artwork to press. Integral to this system is our own software which we created in house so it moulds precisely in to the way we work.

Our compliments to the Create team who produced the video and we hope it helps spread the word that Herefordshire is home to forward thinking business.

New website heads up the rankings

Fiona Davies from Woodlands Self Store has kindly shared her experience of making sure her site is well positioned in Google, an important objective when this newly set up business approached Orphans to develop the website. Here she explains what worked for them.

Elan Exhibition - pulling it all together

The Elan Valley visitor centre had been missing a cornerstone of any popular attraction ... an Exhibition! It was nice then for us to be asked to put together the new exhibition, 'This is Elan'. This was a true team effort. Ruth Lloyd produced great content, researching the incredible history of the Elan Valley, not least the building of the dams and  the diversity of nature and wildlife.
